Three Step Subdivision Process Overview
A general overview is provided below for each process and is fully discussed in Subchapter 15.3 of the Unified Development Code

Preliminary Plan
The Preliminary Plan establishes the proposed configuration of the development, including lots, blocks, streets, utilities, parkland and trails, drainage, connectivity, and trees. Upon submitting a complete application, comments will be provided within 15 business days, and the cycle will repeat until all comments have been addressed. The Planning and Zoning Commission is the final approving entity for Preliminary Plans in the City, Commissioner's Court for applications in the ETJ. For additional information regarding Preliminary Plans, please refer to Subchapter 15.5 of the Unified Development Code.

Final Plat
A Final Plat is to be consistent with the approved Preliminary Plan and solidifies the configuration of the subdivision. Final Plats may incorporate the entire Preliminary Plan area or may be for only a phase of the proposed subdivision. With the Final Plat, parkland is dedicated (conveyed through a separate process) and utility impact fees are assessed. The Final Plat generally follows the same review process as the Preliminary Plan, and the Planning and Zoning Commission is the final approving entity in the City, Commissioner's Court for applications in the ETJ. For additional information regarding Final Plats, please refer to Subchapter 15.6 of the Unified Development Code.

Minor Plat
A Minor Plat may be pursued if the following apply:
  1. The proposed subdivision abuts a public street
  2. The provision of Public Improvements is not required
  3. No more than four lots are proposed
The Planning Director may administratively approve a Minor Plat for applications in the City. For additional information regarding a Minor Plat, please refer to Subchapter 15.7 of the Unified Development Code.

Replat
A Replat is used when a change is required to a previously approved Final Plat. The review process is generally the same as the Final Plat, with exception that public notification and a public hearing is required with a Replat. The Planning and Zoning Commission is the final approving entity in the City, Commissioner's Court for applications in the ETJ. 
For additional information regarding a Replat, please refer to Subchapter 15.8 of the Unified Development Code.

Amending Plat
The Amending Plat is used as a limited means to correct minor errors or make minor adjustments to a recorded plat as permitted by Section 212.016 of the Texas Local Government Code. The Planning Director may administratively approve an Amending Plat for applications in the City. For additional information regarding an Amending Plat, please refer to Subchapter 15.9 of the Unified Development Code.

Construction Plans
Once a Final Plat is approved, Construction Plans for the public infrastructure can be submitted. Along with the plans, a soil evaluation report, hydraulic and hydrologic analyses, and any other reports or analyses may be required by the City Engineer. Construction Plans have a 30 day review process which continues until all comments are cleared. The City Engineer is the final approving entity. Once approved, the public improvements may be constructed with final acceptance provided after all improvements have been installed. For additional information regarding the Construction Plan process, please refer to Subchapter 15.11 of the Unified Development Code.
